The Party on High Street, BOUSADA @ Copper Owl May 26 2017
2300 - 0200
$10 at the door only.
"Not My Fault Productions" presents a night of hard funk and seamless grooves. Don't miss your chance to witness 2 of Victoria's most danceable acts in one room.

THE PARTY ON HIGH STREET
If you were to put the playfulness of George Clinton, the quirkiness of Tom Waits, and the energy of Primus into a cauldron and mixed it together, you would brew up the likes of "The Party on High Street". Hailing from Victoria BC, the trio has conjured up their own style of west-coast funk.

BOUSADA
Equipped with a loop pedal, midi controller and a mic, BOUSADA’s unique sound and high-energy performances are rooted in his passion for building community. Using found sounds, succulent tones and deep bass, his mesmerizing performances and incredible showmanship awes crowds and is almost as much fun to watch as it is to dance to.

Peter Brötzmann is a giant of European free jazz, and indeed avant-garde jazz and free improvisation in general. His legendary second album, Machine Gun, remains a ferocious and imposing work and essentially stands as a document of the formation of the European free improvisation scene. He has led and collaborated with others on numerous influential recordings, including Schwarzwaldfahrt which was recorded outside Germany’s Black Forest and found him playing sax while Han Bennink drummed on trees and other objects. He has served as a member of such blistering groups as the noise rock and heavy metal influenced Last Exit (with Sonny Sharrock,... more...

Bron’s been DJing ever since, producing for the last decade, and remains committed to exploring the quirky underbelly of the electronic underworld.
